A social media user undergoing one year compulsory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, shares his ordeal with the pro-biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra.
Godwin Donatus, took to his Facebook page to recount how he was almost killed by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members.
He revealed how he had to accept being Biafran to escape being lynched.


He wrote:


Viewing the beautiful sight of the Garden City Port Harcourt i decided to visit the popular mile one market to get some stuffs.

I was trying to make purchase when i heard a guy shouting the price of what he was selling in Biafra currency, i asked him ” you are using biafra currency in a Nigerian State” playfully, that was the only thing i said, he dropped the cloths move towards me and Asked me who i was, where i came from, who is my president, which State is Nigerian State, as all these questions dropped at once.

He shouted am a Biafran, my people the next thing i saw i was rounded up in the market, when i look at their faces i know am in Trouble, some of them felt like hitting me, Thank God for my stature and the little Igbo i know, even the guy i wanted to buy something from denied me, i had to speak a little Igbo and declare i was a Biafran.

Now am trying to process the information in my head, what would have happened if i didn’t admit.

As a Corper
Nigeria is Ours
Nigeria we serve.
I pray for this Country Called Nigeria, History should not repeat itself in a Violent manner.”
